Are there any perks for purchasing a new Macbook Pro from an Apple store direct, or is purchasing one anywhere the same? Do they only offer college discounts at the Apple store?
I visited the Apple Store here in Kansas City on Tuesday, and was very disappointed with the help and knowledge of the staff, and to boot they didn't have the Macbook Pro I wanted, and did not offer to have one ordered. The sales person simply told me to call back, or go online and order one.

I'm also having a hard time deciding between the entry level Macbook Pro, and the mid level Macbook.

At the school I go to they offer the 2499 laptop for 1999 so that was certainly an incentive to go with then. Also, you can still get the 179 MIB for the ipod nano as well!

Oh, they have the old 1.86 ghz MBP for 1499.

I went with PowerMax, just because I enjoyed how friendly they were. They also assured me, even with 1 dead pixel, they would swap out my MacBook. I am due to get it tomorrow afternoon. We'll See.

I forfeited my student discount, but that is fine with me, for a piece of mind that I will not be stuck with even a single dead pixel.

To cLin........
whoa...I should've mailed you my money Haha.... Is that 1499 without a Mail-In? Or with it?

That's a smoking deal.
